Hello KBOO volunteers,

This is your fellow volunteer, Melati. Starting today, I will be sending weekly emails to all volunteers. This project is an attempt to help KBOO staff better communicate with volunteers and show hosts so please be sure to read this weekly bulletin!

Can't make it to the studio? Don't worry, just check your email for KBOO events and news and weekly and event specific volunteer opportunities. In addition, you can check the volunteer page for more information and opportunities (kboo.fm/volunteer).

Your time and energy are greatly appreciated!
